FOURTH VICTORY TEST HONOURS GO TO ENGLAND Rec. 11.10 a.m. LONDON, August 8. Although the Fourth Victory Tost faded out without a decision, it was a moral victory for the English eleven, who, on the three days' play, looked the better side. Declaring just before the tea adjournment to-cay, Hammond made a bid for victory, but, after securing four wickets at low cost, Miller and Stanford steadily batted out time.

England's batsmen were untroubled by the Australian attack. Hammond anil Washbrook added 157 for the fourth wicket, and Washbrook and Edrich 100 for the fifth wicket. Washbrook scored 112 in 235 minutes. He hit a sixer and nine fours. Hammond batted with his old-time brilliance to-day, and Edrich, too played brightly.
